control, you could ban all dianne feinstein, do whatever she wants to with magazines, it's not going to make any kid safer. we got to get to the real problem, the real causes and that's what the nra is trying to do. i have people all over the country calling me and saying, wayne, i went to bed safer last night because i have a firearm. don't let the media try to make this a gun issue. >> that's argument, it not fact. >> it is fact. >> a feeling is not fact. a feeling is a sense of reassurance, that's not what you're presenting. let's talk more specifically about what you're talking about, armed guards in school. there are successful examples. fairfax county, virginia has armed officers. there are examples where it hasn't worked. the columbine tragedy, it didn't stop the carnage. >> there were armed guards there and they didn't go in. they were under orders that if something happened they were to call the police for backup. >> they exchanged fires with the shooters. >> they waited for the s.w.a.t. team to show up and the s.w.a.t. team sat outside and tried to figure out what to do. ev
. you had that for ten years when dianne feinstein passed that ban in '94, it was on the books. columbine occurred right in the middle of it. it didn't make any difference. i know everyone -- this town wants to argue about gun control. i don't think it's what will work. what will work is this, i'll tell you this -- >> this is a matter of logic. anybody watching this is going to say i just heard mr. lapierre say the standard is we should try anything that might reduce the violence and you're telling me it's not a matter of common sense that if you don't have an ability to shoot off 30 rounds without reloading that just possibly you could reduce the loss of life, that adam lanza may not have been able to shoot as many kids if he didn't have as much ammunition? >> i don't buy your argument. >> it's not possible? >> there are so many different ways he could have done it. there's endless amount of ways a monster can do it. >> don't take it from me. here is a jed judge, a gun owner and supports the nra, here is what he wrote in the "los angeles times."

's number two democrat says congressional hearings on gun control are on the way. senator dianne feinstein telling to get an assault weapon ban bill on the floor next month. senator chuck schumer of new york since in a political opportunity, passing gun-control insulation. >> i think we could be added to pinpoint for two reasons. to pinpoint where we might acally get something done. first, this was not a single incident. second, of course, it involves children. lou: hardly anyone is using to talk about mental illness, the disaffection of the mentally disturbed, the importance of a strong family and how to better protect our schools. we'll be taking on those issues tonight, talking with former homeland security director and virginia tech review panel member governor tom ridge. also, a closer look at what congress is having some much trouble getting answers from america's top diplomat on the benghazi terrorist attack.. author jean marie last this on her new book, hidden america, which celebrates the people that are too often ignored but do the jobs that make our lives in this country work. o
than enthusiastic about the idea, especially the democrats. dianne feinstein who is expected to introduce gun control legislation in january, called the nra idea "distraction." others suggest it might have the opposite effect on lawmakers. >> well, i think he is so extreme a tone deaf he actually helps the cause of us passing sensible gun legislation in the congress. >> we have 130,000 elementary school and secondary schools in this country. if you had two officers in each, that would cost $25 billion. where is that money going to come from? >> one g.o.p. senator said he is not sure this needs to be a federal effort. >> local education decisions are best made at the local level. >> but the ceo of the national rifle association who called the connecticut school murders a "horrible tragedy" is proposing a voluntary program to allow schools to bring in retired police, military or secret service together provide armed security. >> every mom and dad would make them feel better if they drop off their kids at school we have a police officer in the school, good guy that if a horrible
weapon is a disgrace. >> reporter: senator dianne feinstein who introduced the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 has already said she will introduce similar legislation again in january. back to you. >> thank you, audrey. >>> between this and the fiscal cliff debates there is a lot to talk about in politics tonight. we're bringing in as always fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. good to see you tonight. >> good to be here. >> let's start where audrey left off, the nra's wayne lapierre called senator feinstein's proposals a phoney bit of legislation built on lies and said it won't pass. why? >> i think there's an entirely different climate. i think wayne lapierre is out of touch with public mood. you just ran claim of senator mark warner, a rating nra who is obviously rethinking his position. senator manchin of west virginia, a proud nra member, has said that there has to be fundamental change and so i think you have people who were really advocates of leaving the gun control measures alone have now shifted and i think there is going to be legislation. the only problem is y
, bob, is that when you look at the problem-- let's say we pass diann dianne feinstein's bill, how would that stop the next school shooting? it wouldn't. because it doesn't take guns off the street, and if you did, you couldn't. so that doesn't solve the problem. >> schieffer: but doesn't it make it more difficult? mr. keene-- >> it doesn't-- >> schieffer: if a man had talked about that school in connecticut with a baseball bat, he might have given a couple of people a concussion, but all those children would not be dead. >> well, you know, the fact that something is misused, whether it's a baseball bat or the mass killing in a chinese school with an axe and a knife, doesn't mean that you ban baseball bats, axes and knives or guns. >> schieffer: nobody is saying-- >> it means suprotect the innocent on one exphawnd try to keep weapons out of the hands of those who are likely to commit such crimes. one of the problems and this is reflected in public attitudes is what's wrong with our mental health system? because a lot of these people are not even-- are not even-- when they've been seen as
with wall-to- wall attention. >> reporter: democratic senator dianne feinstein of california, a long time leader in gun control, called the n.r.a.'s plan a distraction that's only intended to delay action by congress. >> should we have a conversation about school security? yes. should we have a conversation about mental illness and the culture of violence? yes. but we can't ignore the common denominator in all of these deadly massacres: access, easy access to killing machines. >> reporter: the fact is, scott, that one-third of america's public schools already have armed security and it's interesting to note an armed deputy sheriff was assigned to columbine high school near denver in 1999 but failed to stop that attack that killed 13. >> pelley: chip, thank you very much. of course, the best thing is to prevent a mass shooting and the united states secret service has spent years studying assassins and school shooters in order to do just that. brian vossekuil and robert fein wrote two studies for the secret service and they told us in an interview for "60 minutes" that gunmen often leave a
, connecticut., senator dianne feinstein has been promising to push for a renewal of legislation banning certain weapons. other senators have voiced their support for such legislation. but n-r-a c-e-o wayne lapierre is dismissing any bans on assault weapons and made clear yesterday it was highly unlikely that the n- r-a would support any new gun regulations. meanwhile, demonstrators marched over new york city's brooklyn bridge demanding tighter gun laws in the country. several hundred people participated in the march. carrying candles, the protestors stopped in the middle of the iconic bridge to read the names of the children and adults killed at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. >> an afghan police official says an afghan policewoman has killed an american adviser at the kabul police headquarters. the deputy police chief says an investigation is underway to determine whether the killing was intentional or accidental. the victim was a military or civilian adviser. the nato military command says it's looking into reports of the shooting but had no other information. >> hawaii is saying
's not stopping lawmakers like senator dianne feinstein of california who is vowing to renew legislation to ban certain weapons and limit the number of bullets a magazine can hold. we could see movement on this legislation as soon as next month. she has a lot of support among fellow democrats. >> trying to prevent shootings in schools without talking about guns is like trying to prevent lung cancer without talking about cigarettes. >> also on meet the press yesterday, the c.e.o. of the nra dismissed calls for an assault weapons ban or limiting ammunition. instead he is pushing for more police officers in schools. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you what the american people -- i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. >> talking about the american people, there are plenty of signs the nation is as divided on this issue as the political parties appear to be. a cbs news poll conducted after newtown found 57% of americans support tougher gun control laws. that is the strongest level
, though, that is not stopping lawmakers like senator dianne feinstein of california from possibly proposing new legislation, maybe as soon as next month that would tighten the gun control laws in america, possibly limiting which weapons can be sold and how many bullets can be housed within a magazine. she certainly has plenty of support from fellow democrats. >> trying to prevent shootings in schools without talking about guns is like trying to prevent lung cancer without talking about cigarettes. >> reporter: also on the sunday talk shows, we saw the c.e.o. of the nra coming out dismissing calls for an assault weapons ban or limiting ammunitions. instead he is pushing for more police officers in schools. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you that the american people think it's crazy not to do it. >> reporter: in the meantime we're seeing plenty of signs that the american public is as divided on this issue of gun control as we see within the political parties. cbs news poll taken righ
best recommendations how to stop these mass shootings. this past week democrat senator dianne feinstein told our piers morgan exactly what she wants. >> this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. people have to respond. they have to understand that the rights for many to remain safe are more important than any right you may think you have to have a military-style assault weapon. >> okay. so you heard her. so tom, you've been a cop. not just a gun owner. you own a gun store. so this goes beyond that for you. what's your reaction to the senator's words? >> well, i don't think that the assault weapons ban or propose the assault weapon ban is going to solve or prevent crimes like this from happening. >> why? why not? >> why's that? because what -- what's going to happen is, people like these shooters in aurora, colorado, and virginia tech, here in connecticut, these were mentally disturbed people. mentally unstable people, who slipped through the cracks. whose family, whose mental health care professionals, didn't take the steps to have them, or petition the court to have them adjudica
dianne feinstein, carl levin, as well as republican john mccain whose own experiences as a p.o.w. in vietnam have made him an outspoken critic of torture. now, since most people have not seen the film yet, let me explain a little bit. the torture scenes, which there are more than one show cia interrogators waterboarding, humiliating, and abusing detainees. in the movie, these interrogations do result in crucial information in the search for osama bin laden. now, i would not say that the film actually glorifies torture, but the cia operatives are not squeamish about what they're doing. at a later point in the film, one of the officials complained about president obama's decision to stop the detainee program. now, in a letter to sony, which is the studio behind the film, the senators say that "zero dark thirty" is, quote, perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. they argue that a still classified report proves they called the coercive interrogations did not result in any information that led to bin laden's capture. here's what else they had to say in the letter. they sa
democrat senator dianne feinstein told our piers morgan exactly what she wants. >> this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. people have to respond. 23 they have to understand that the rights for many to remain safe are are month important than any right you may think you have to have a military-style assault weapon. >> okay. so you heard her. sir tom, you've been a top. yot just a gun owner. you own a gun store. so this goes beyond that for you. what's your reaction to the senator's words? >> well, i don't think that the assault weapons ban or propose the assault weapon ban is going to solve or prevent crimes like this from happening. >> why? why not? >> why's that? because what -- what's going to happen is, people like these shooters in aurora, colorado, and virginia tech, here in connecticut, these were mentally disturbed people. mentally unstable people, who slipped through the cracks. whose family, whose mental health care professionals, didn't take the steps to have them, or petition the court to have them adjudicated so they couldn't possess and have a firearm and it's n
, getting them down to say five or so bullets, willing to go after what feinstein is dushing, dianne feinstein, something on assault weapons. is there something he can go for and win because it seems to me losing will not get him any points. your thoughts? >> i think he's clearly announced that's the direction he's going to go. look, when you have an event like this, i'm very pro second amendment but when you see something like this occur it causes you to think through in terms of your beliefs, do you continues to hold those beliefs given what happened. i still do and obviously the president is going -- >> what's the smart move though? is it magazine side, mental health and -- >> i just got to it. i would suggest where he can make some significant process is the mental health side of it. when you look at what happens to gabby giffords, at virginia tech. >> gif me john hinckley. >>hinkley? >> john hikley, as well. and there he can make some significant process. when you look at some of these situations, the person clearly was troubled. >> now how do you stop a guy that wants to shoot
of the n.r.a. in an article in this morning's "new york times," they quote senator dianne feinstein who was at a news conference on friday, she is the california democrat who is leading an effort to reinstitute a ban on salmt rifles. she wrote -- host: i want to show you more of what she had to say at the news conference yesterday saying that the n.r.a.'s blanket call to narms our schools is nothing more than a distraction. this is more of what she had to say. [video clip] >> if the schools want to hire armed guards, i support that. it's a decision each school district should make and many school districts already have armed guards. in fact 28,300 public schools. that's act 1/3 of all public schools, have armed security staff. in fact, there were two armed law enforcement officers who twice engaged the shooters at columbine. that didn't prevent 15 from being killed and 23 wounded. copies of the sheriff's investigative transcript with exactly what happened are available right at the back of the room. the n.r.a.'s blanket dual arm our schools is really nothing more than a distraction. it'
when dianne feinstein says she's going to introduce this bill, how likely is it to pass and how likely is anything to happen as far as gun control is concerned? >> there's no question that the sentiment has shift ed. we have been reporting on joe mansion who was an a vid supporter saying he's flipped and he wants there to be gun control measures. but he is a pretty safe senator when it comes to the politics of his state. he could be senator for life if he wants to, he's very popular. there are other people up for reelection who are not as safe. they are from gun rights states. many of them are democrats. it's still going to be an uphill battle. there's no chemical weapon about it. it goes back to what we have been talking about since this horrible tragedy happened, which is the main reason why democrats have silent until the newtown tragedy is because it's bad politics. many of them have believed that for the past decade. bad politics in red states to even talk about the idea of gun control. not so much because of the money that the nra puts in but because they are very powerful in gin
made it very difficult, of course, for senators based there to do their work. so senator dianne feinstein's staff joined in my offices in the russell building. my chief of staff at the time gave them full access. one of senator feinstein's staff members commented on that. "a republican office giving democrats free rein?" but my chief of staff just said, they had full access because we trusted them. senator feinstein and i have teamed up to pass important legislation. the hutchison-feinstein overseas basing commission that studied the training capabilities and costs ofverseas military bases to determine their value compared to american bases. this resulted in consolidation and closures that brought thousands of troops back to the united states where training and rapid deployment were superior. we passed the feinstein-hutchison breast cancer stamp bill. through voluntary purchase it has raised $72 million for breast cancer research. that was senator feinstein's idea. and senator feinstein and i took the amber ale for abducted children nationwide, which has accounted for rescuing d
because we used torture. >> mccain with senators dianne feinstein and carl levin wrote to sony complaining "zero dark thirty" has the potential to shape american public opinion in a disturbing and misleading manner. they asked sony to consider correcting the impression that c cia's use of interrogation techniques led to the capture of osama bin laden. she said showing the techniques was vital to the form. >> i think it was important for us to tell a true story. it's controversial but it's part of the history. >> part of history perhaps but only future historians might know how accurate holiday's first look at the search for bin laden actually is. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone cbs news. >> sony hat nos responded. senior correspondent john miller who once interviewed bin laden is a former director of cia national intelligence. we'll get the information from you now. how accurate is this portrayal? >> well the portrayal is extraordinarily accurate in the way that movies are accurate so all of that up to and including that one of the detainees was sub
questions next week. >> next, democratic senators dianne feinstein and richard blumenthal respond to and criticize the nra's remarks. the senators also take questions from reporters. from capitol hill, this is 25 minutes. >> good afternoon. i am here with the senior senator from connecticut. we would like to make a few remarks and response to the national rifle association press conference this morning. this morning the nra said that they wanted to have a conversation about security. i would like to respond to that call. if school districts want to hire armed security guards, i support that. that is a decision each school district should make. many school districts already have armed guards. 28,300 public schools, that is about one-third of all public schools have armed security staff. in fact, there were two are in the law enforcement officers who twice engaged the shooters at columbine. that did not prevent 15 from being killed and 23 wounded. copies of the investigative transcript with exactly what happened is a available at the back of the room. the blanket call to arms school
control in the wak of the sandy hook school shooting. democratic senator dianne feinstein is proposing a new assault weapons ban, while president obama is putting vice president biden in charge of the administration's efforts. but a lot of these changes start on a state level. bob marshall is a delegate in the virginia state house. he's proposed a new law for schools in his state which would mean arming teachers. now, i want to ask you this. good morning to you, sir. are you saying that teachers should be able to carry guns in school or be required to carry guns in school? >> no. you're overstating it. look at the situation. arm some teachers, arm some school personnel who voluntarily participate in this. one of the problems that you have is that when you have an area that's a gun-free zone, criminals don't pay attention to this. shootings which have occurred to 1950 to the present with one exception where there's three or more people killed have occurred in areas that are gun-free zones. that's the problem. i want people to be able to have after they receive equivalent law enforcement
and people have different views whether this is right or not. >> we have a bunch of senators, dianne feinstein, carl levin, john mccain, all of whom sent a letter to sony pictures calling the film grossly inaccurate and misleading. "the new york times" is now reporting that cia act director michael morrell sent out an agency-wide letter criticizing it. >> it is no question that the -- political drama around this movie is added to the buzz and made it as interesting as the film itself. i guess in the -- in the -- lit help drive interest into this thing but there's also a negative which is the fact that there's been so many of these political complaints that it could hurt the film at oscar time. lot of people will be voting for best picture, you know, may vekd thoughts because they -- they have this sense from, you know, authoritative sources that there is misleading and -- harmful position. >> can i ask you quickly of focus on this lone wolf character maya who is credited with the tracking down of bin laden. was this the case in reality? >> this is a very accurate portrayal. the woman
